Editor’s Prologue By Sandie Biddle, Managing editor editor@centrecountygazette.com ccgazette@hughes.net

How I wish I could have been to the Bellefonte Cruise last weekend! A personal tragedy kept me away. But the words and photos of Sam Stitzer and Brian Baney made me feel as if I were part of that magical event. You’ll see what I mean inside. In fact, there were so many wonderful photos, there are more on our Facebook page, so log on and see how many people you recognize. Karen Dabney had just as much fun covering the Spring Creek Festival at Millbrook Marsh last weekend. It began with a 5K run and went through the day offering exhibits and children’s events galore. She also took so many great photos that we’ve put the remainder on the Facebook page. Though school’s out for summer, we are still getting plenty of news about our kids. This issue, we feature a number of awards to our great youngsters, plus information is scattered about the issue about things to do this summer, including a “boot camp” at the PA Military Museum, various vacation Bible schools, summer reading programs at the libraries, the Bellefonte Children’s garden, and a 4-H open house featuring pony rides! Speaking of great kids – a high schooler from Penns Valley organized an entire day of bluegrass-style entertainment at the Grange Fairgrounds this weekend, congruent with the Centre Hall Relay for Life. Cody Stoner presents Music for H.O.P.E. from 9 a.m. to 8 p.m. at the South Stage, with admission going to the Hope Foundation. In fact, music is this weekend’s serendipitous theme. There are free outdoor concerts Friday in Lemont, Sundays in Talleyrand Park and South Hills Business School, and the biggie – Summer’s Best Music Festival, with concerts all day Saturday on three stages in downtown State College! It’s all free or for a donation to a good cause. Also in this issue, check out the EcoCar developed by geniuses at Penn State – a modified Saturn that came in at about 57 miles per gallon. Those of you who love animals will want to help Pets Come First pay for the fence they installed at the SPCA – in honor of Mack, a dear doggie who got away and met his fate on the highway. Neighbors helping neighbors seems to be an underlying theme of The Gazette. There are two more ways you can help. The Red Cross is critically low on specific blood types. You’ll find the story and the schedule of donation locations inside. The Cancer Society needs some everyday angels to volunteer to drive cancer patients to treatments. Maybe you will be one of those caring chauffeurs. Next issue – Independence Day events, featuring the Fourth Fest in State College and smaller celebrations all over the county. You won’t be lacking for fireworks. Those majestic, thundering, sparkling skies never cease to fill me with awe. Following the fireworks, the arts festivals. Look for our Peoples Choice Festival guide free on newsstands near you. I’m writing the guide as you read this, as I have many years. Though the weather is warm, the days long, and our countryside is decorated with new growth and promise, there are many who are suffering with personal challenges and tragedies. Say a prayer, send a card, bake a casserole. It’s what we do. It’s what my neighbors did that for me on the passing of my dear mother last week. Bless them.

Students Receive Outstanding American History Awards By Gwen Carusone

The Bellefonte Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution sponsor a variety of projects in the Centre County area. One of these is the Outstanding American History Award for the top students in American history at all Centre County high schools. As the American History Chairman of the Bellefonte Chapter of the Daughter’s of the American Revolution, I would like to personally congratulate the recipients of this year’s award. This year’s Outstanding American History Award goes to Teressa Deardorf, in the Penns Valley School District; Yuliya Likhonina and Daniel Detnar in the Bellefonte School District; and Amber McClure in the Bald Eagle School District. The American History Award is presented to the senior who attains the highest average in American History. These seniors will receive a $50 United States Savings Bond, a certificate, and a medal. The National Society Daughters of the American Revolution (DAR) was founded in Washington, DC, in 1890. DAR objectives are Historic Preservation, Promotion of Education, and Patriotic Endeavor. The Bellefonte Chapter of the Daughters of the American Revolution was founded on October 10, 1895. Charter members include Mary McAllister Beaver, the wife of

Pennsylvania Governor General James A. Beaver, and Mrs. Jane Irvin Shaw Thompson, a daughter-in-law of Moses Thompson who, together with General James Irvin, were the benefactors of the Farmers High School, later The Pennsylvania State University. Bellefonte Chapter has two Real Daughters, Elizabeth Evans Reese (1813-1910), and Mary Allison Rishel (1821-1912). Each of these women was a first-generation daughter of a Patriot. Chapter members are women ages 19-101 of all walks of life. Members live in Bellefonte, State College, Lemont, Milesburg, Howard, Centre Hall, Port Matilda, Penns Valley, Pennsylvania Furnace, and several areas in Bald Eagle Valley. Some are non-resident members and live elsewhere in Pennsylvania or other states. Members of other DAR Chapters may participate in all Bellefonte Chapter activities as Associate Members. Current membership includes 90 members and four associate members. Any woman 18 years or older who can prove lineal descent from a patriot of the American Revolution is eligible for membership.

BHS Launches Second Mile Leadership Institute BELLEFONTE – One Centre County high school is set to work on a project idea developed at The Second Mile Leadership Institute in State College. The Leadership Institute, which takes place every spring, is a conference designed to create safe schools through student team-building among diverse populations. High schools from across Pennsylvania send teams of students representing the diversity of their student bodies to learn leadership skills and to develop strategies for working cooperatively toward a common goal. The student representatives also work to make improvements in their schools and communities.

Bellefonte Area High School students Torrie Sealy, Seth Weaver, Breanna Singer, Haley Singer, Daniel Roan, and faculty mentor, Elizabeth Heidt, are hoping to engage other students in planning and putting on a Career Fair to help their fellow students increase their knowledge of desired careers. The students also hope to provide a follow-up mentoring program. The Second Mile challenges young people to achieve their potential as individuals and community members by providing opportunities for them to develop positive life skills and selfesteem as well as by providing education

and support for parents and professionals addressing the needs of youth. Annually, the organization serves more than 100,000 Pennsylvania children and families free of charge. Funding for all of The Second Mile’s programs is made possible through donations – community organizations, foundations, individuals and corporations like State Farm. For information about supporting Second Mile programs or about having a team from your high school attend The Second Mile Leadership Institute, contact The Second Mile (814) 237-1719.

Girl Scout Award for Brittany Etters HOWARD – On June 11, the Bellefonte Elks awarded the Girl Scout Gold Award to Brittany Etters, a student from Bald Eagle High School, at the Howard United Methodist Church. Representing the Bellefonte Elks and presenting the award was Denise Zelznick, Leading Knight and Jack Bechdel, Scouting Chair. Brittany’s project was a Veterans Memorial honoring all Veterans native to the Howard area.

Penns Valley Roadway Improvement Projects Underway Contributed by PennDOT PENNS VALLEY â&#x20AC;&#x201C; A roadway improvement project in Centre County began Wednesday, June 15. Over the next two weeks, crews will be working to resurface roadway on Route 45 from Spring Mills to Aaronsburg. Crews will also be working on Route 192 from the Centre Hall intersection

to Penns Cave. A daylight, alternating traffic pattern will be in place and drivers can expect to encounter flaggers on the roadway and short travel delays. Workers will be in the roadway and motorists need to be alert for sudden stops. PennDOT reminds drivers to use caution and not to follow trucks into the closed lane as they deliver material. Project work includes roadway milling, resurfacing,

line painting, and miscellaneous construction. All work is weather dependent. Glenn O. Hawbaker, Inc. is the contractor on this $6.7 million project, which covers 19 routes in Centre and Clinton counties. PennDOT expects to complete the entire project in 2012. For more information on roadway operations, visit PennDOTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website at www.dot.state.pa.us. Follow PennDOT on Twitter at www.twitter.com/511PAStateCOLL.

BHS Class of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;46 Donates Reunion Funds to FaithCentre Elks Select New Officers

BELLEFONTE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; After 64 reunions, the Bellefonte High School Class of 1946 decided theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve thrown enough parties. The friends will still gather informally but, as a group, they felt reunions involved more expense and planning than time and other commitments permitted for the core of organizers. After much discussion, the class voted to donate the funds remaining in their account to the FaithCentre Food Bank. Nina Bailey,

Pat Brindel, Rose Plozner, and Grace Torsell visited the FaithCentre on June 16 to tour the food bank and present the director, Nicole Summers, with a check. The women met with volunteers, learned about how the food bank operated and spent some time socializing with the FaithCentre staff and clients. The donated funds will be used to help keep the food bank shelves stocked as need for food assistance continues to climb.

STEVE COLE - Owner 1160 Old 220 Rd. Bellefonte, PA 16823

Ursula Hegi is an author with a special touch; her ability to set a mood and develop characters is exceptional. The Worst Thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve Done shows these talents very well. Annie, Jake, and Mason grew up together and had developed a special bond. It was taken for granted that Annie would marry one of the boys. The day that Annie and Mason marry, Annieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s parents are in a car accident. Her father is killed instantly, and her mother lives long enough to give birth to a daughter, Opal. Annie and Mason decide to raise Opal with Jake being an extra father

to the infant girl. Annie struggles with being a sister and a mother to Opal, a wife to Mason, a friend to Jake, and to develop the artistic talent that is important to her. When we first meet Annie, she is spending her time driving aimlessly in her car, eating junk food and listening to advice programs on the radio. She has not come to terms with Masonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recent death and she keeps hearing his voice making his own comments to the people asking for advice on the radio shows. As Annie remembers the life she had shared

with the people around her, we get more and more insight into the relationship that the three friends shared. Little things from the past come back to her, giving her a better understanding of the people she loves. Watching Annie put all the pieces of her life together, gives us a story of friendship, love, marriage, and motherhood. In a book that is perfectly plotted, Hegi shows us how sorrow and joy can be closely connected and how both help us to grow. If you are fortunate to have read Ms Hegiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Stones From the River, you know what a talent she is.

Bellefonte Clubs Raise $2,000+ for Charity BELLEFONTE â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The Clubs of Bellefonte held their fifth annual Poker Walk last month. Each walker donated $5 to walk to five clubs: Bellefonte American Legion, Elks, Eagles, Undines, and VFW. The walk started at the Bellefonte Moose at 2 p.m. and lasted until 7 p.m. with each club treating the walkers to meals and refreshments. More than 200 walkers participated! The best hand received gift certificates from Bellefonte businesses and clubs. More than $1,000 was raised and presented to Campanis Operation Shoebox and $1,000 was presented to Briana Gardner to help with her expenses. Participants also donated money and 168 non-perishable food items for the Bellefonte Food Bank, plus money and 46 books to the library.

How You Can Help Spring Creek Family Festival and 5K Run Cancer Society Seeks Drivers Raises Money & Awareness for Precious Natural Resources Contributed by American Cancer Society

The American Cancer Society is looking for volunteers in Centre County who can help with the Road to Recovery program. This program provides cancer patients with a free ride to and from their treatment site. Road to Recovery drivers are responsible for picking up a cancer patient at home and driving them to their treatment at the hospital, medical center, or other sites. After treatment they take the patient back home. Some patients may not have friends or relatives in the area who can accommodate their transportation needs. However, the volunteer Road to Recovery drivers donate their time and the use of their personal vehicle to transport cancer patients. The American Cancer Society is currently seeking volunteer drivers who are willing to donate some time plus their vehicle to assist those who lack a ride for cancer treatment. Those interested need to attend a short training at the American Cancer Society office in State College. A current valid Pennsylvania driver’s license, a good driving record and proof of adequate auto insurance are necessary. To learn more about the American Cancer Society’s Road to Recovery program call Mandi Billotte at (814) 238-1023.

How You Can Help Red Cross Has Serious Blood Shortage

The critical appeal for blood types O, A and B negative and O positive continues, according to the Greater Alleghenies Blood Services Region of the American Red Cross. A Red Cross official said that local blood donors are needed immediately at blood drives scheduled in the area. “It’s not a situation we can afford to be complacent about, and we are stressing to our blood donors that they need to make a commitment now to donate blood. Although it is only the beginning of the summer, we already have a severe drop in the number of blood donations,” said John Hagins, CEO, of the Greater Alleghenies Region. The Red Cross historically experiences a decline in blood donations during the summer months due to vacations, people getting busy with other activities, and extreme heat. However, people having surgery, experiencing trauma, and receiving cancer treatments continue to receive transfusions of blood and blood products. Type O negative is the universal blood type and can be transfused to patients with any blood type. The Red Cross says there must be an adequate supply at all times because it is a necessity for emergencies and is in high demand for trauma cases. Type O positive is the most common blood type and is the most requested by hospitals. The Red Cross is also experiencing a high demand for types A negative and B negative. Visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) to find a blood drive near you or to schedule an appointment. (See the listing of blood drives in Centre County near the back of this and every issue of The Gazette.)

St. Paul Lutheran Church Acquires Cemetery PINE GROVE MILLS – On April 1 2011, the St. Paul Lutheran Church assumed ownership and management of the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery. Up until that time, the cemetery was managed by the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery Association. Land for the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery, 152 S. Nixon Road, Ferguson Township, was purchased in 1896, by the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery Association. The land for the new cemetery was purchased because the old cemetery in Pine Grove Mills, between the Pine Grove Mills Presbyterian Church and St. Albans on Route 45 / Main Street Pine Grove Mills, was running out of space. By 1914, the old cemetery was completely filled. The new cemetery was open to the public on July 4, 1896. In 2005 the estate of R. Mike and Kathryn Shoemaker, who were members of St. Paul Lutheran Church, left an endowment to the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery Association through the Centre County Community Foundation. Because the Shoemaker’s last will specified that the endowment recipient must have a specific IRS nonprofit classification,

the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery Association approached the St. Paul Lutheran Church about the possibility of taking over the cemetery. In April 2011 assets of the Pine Grove Mills Cemetery Association were transferred to the St. Paul Lutheran Church and the church took over management. “The mission of the church is to reach out to the community and help where we see a need,” said Pastor Kelley Baxter about the church’s decision to take over management. “As Christians, we believe in a life to come, and we realize that it is important to honor those who have come before us.” St. Paul has assembled a six-person St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery Team to deal specifically with the cemetery. The team objective is to perpetually manage the cemetery, providing the community with a respectable place for burial. The cemetery is 3.42 acres. There are about 75 burial lots and 45 columbarium niches (for cremations) available for purchase. A single burial lot costs $250 and a columbarium niche costs $700 each. Inquiries can be sent to the St. Paul Lutheran Church, P.O. Box 200, Pine Grove Mills, PA 16868 or call (814) 237-2081.

Cruisin’, Cruisin’ Baby! Article & photos by Brian Baney

For the 23rd year, the Bellefonte Cruise brought out thousands of happy participants and spectators. Friday and Saturday, June 17 and 18, the streets of Bellefonte came alive with oldies but goodies, galore.   Friday evening from 6 to 7:30, the streets of Bellefonte were packed with beautiful vehicles. The sidewalks were lined and packed three and four deep in some spots to watch the parade of hot rods, antique trucks and some of today’s most popular retro-style models. Vroom, vroom and screeching tires brought back memories of when “lapping the block” was the thing to do. I was just a kid, and couldn’t drive, but I remember Friday and Saturday nights were tough nights to get to sleep in town.  Friday’s crowd had many folks who lapped their share of blocks back then. I’m sure that’s one reason why the Bellefonte Cruise is one of the most popular events in Centre County – not to mention the Friday Night Sock Hop, sponsored by Jabco-Maggi and hosted by the DJs of your oldies station WOWY 97.1.   Youngsters and some “sock-hop veterans” packed the Bellefonte Diamond to dance the night away to Central PA’s oldies band, Your Dad’s Friends, made up of the Gazette’s very  own Don Bedell, along with Dave DeCapria, Rick Herbster, Roger Corey, and Craig Schaffer. Fred and Carol Gay of Bellefonte won the dance contest and two DQ tickets. Dressed in their best Hawaiian shirts and with moves only a sock-hop veteran would know, this great couple took the cake! Though be it, perhaps, a frozen DQ cake. The night wasn’t over yet. A hoola-hoop contest and best-dressed contest rounded out the evening’s entertainment.  Saturday welcomed car owners and car enthusiasts with warm temperatures and a, beautiful sunny day. The sun shone brightly on freshly waxed paint and chrome on vehicles parked on Allegheny and High Streets. Hoods up, engines shined to a gleam, tires glossy black, some with the whitest of white walls you’ve ever seen.

Hundreds of car fans packed Allegheny Street during the 2011 Bellefonte Cruise.

Young Barnhart Shows the Way on the Greens By Jim Shorts

While Rory McIlroy was making easy work of the course and the field at the U.S. Open, another young Irishman was taking aim at a local course as he played his first round and wound up showing up the field just as much as the eventual Open winner. Luke Barnhart, an 8-year old from Milesburg, left the friendly confines of his backyard “course” and took to the links at the Belles Springs Golf Course for his first “real” round of golf. He joined his dad’s team with Keith

Taylor, Matt Masullo and Buck Bonchack for the 23rd annual Gary Confer Memorial Tournament. The team started on the ninth hole and was staring at a length birdie try after Taylor’s approach shot came to rest some 27 feet from the hole. The reason the length is known is because that was the “Longest Putt” hole. In the group, Luke was the first to take a shot at the lengthy as well as tricky putt. Barnhart pulled back his junior size

Three Local Wrestlers Reach National Championship Tournaments Submitted by Fans of Penns Valley Wrestling Three local wrestlers were in action in last weekend. Michael Rogers, Seth Decker, and Curtis Decker (all from Spring Mills) were selected to wrestle for Team Pennsylvania in the Greco Roman and Freestyle National Championships. Rogers had finished second in the state of Pennsylvania in Greco Roman at the state championship tournament held in May in Bellefonte while both of the Decker’s finished in the top echelon in their brackets at the same tournament in Bellefonte. Rogers and Curtis Decker were selected to Team Pennsylvania to wrestle in the National Championships of the Schoolboy division (seventh and eighth grade) which was held in Indianapolis, Indiana. Both of the young men wrestle for Penns Valley Junior High and only one other school had more than one wrestler selected to the National team, that being Brookville. Rogers wrestled for Pennsylvania Blue and his teamed earned the silver medal in Greco Roman and in Freestyle. In the Freestyle national championship match

putter and in one deft movement, the ball and putter face met briefly before the ball went on its way over the dewy grass of the green and then disappeared into the cup. A roar went up from the group as the smallest golfer in the field knocked down what would stand up as the longest putt of the day. That would not be only time the pint sized blond would draw the cheers of his teammates. He showed up his dad on a couple holes and even added color commentary when a struck ball would send the ball astray. He would go on to drill another long putt on the back nine and almost knocked his tee shot onto the green on the par-3 17th. Overall, the first round for the third grader was deemed a great success. From his work off the tee, his chipping and his ability to roll the ball on the green, all of his playing partners were impressed. His next round could be a bit more daunting as his winning longest putt netted him four free rounds at Toftrees. When his winning putt was announced, a number of golfers found their way to him trying to be a part of that foursome. Congratulations, Luke. You certainly made this Father’s Day weekend one that will last forever in the mind of your very proud father.

Teeing off on the 12th hole.

P.O. Brings Home Gold By Matt Masullo

Michael Rogers with his his twomedals from the National Championship held in Indianapolis. Pa Blue was up by four points going into the last match before their heavyweight was pinned by a Minnesota wrestler gave Minnesota a narrow 37-36 victory. The Blue team also lost the Greco Roman championship match to Minnesota completing the tournament with a 17-2 record with an average victory margin of about 30 points in the 17 wins. Curtis wrestled for Pennsylvania Red and his team finished fifth in the nation in Greco Roman. Both boys will wrestle in the upcoming season for Penns Valley’s Junior High squad. Seth Decker was selected to wrestle for Team Pennsylvania in the Cadet (9th and 10th graders) division at the National Championships which were held in Daytona Beach, Florida. His team finished second in the nation in Greco Roman after losing in the championship match to Illinois. The Pennsylvania team had several kids not make weight in the freestyle tournament and had to forfeit a minimum of two weights in every match and thus failed to advance to the championship round. Seth will wrestle for the Penns Valley varsity team this winter.

A year ago, the Philipsburg-Osceola softball team was on the wrong end of a 3-1 extra inning loss to Nanticoke in the State Championship in Shippensburg. This year, they didn’t need extra innings, but they did need some heroics to capture the PIAA Class AA State Championship, defeating Brandywine Heights 1-0 last Friday at Penn State’s Beard Field. The victory caps a 25-1 season for the Lady Mounties. P.O. ace Chelsea Rex struck out 11 hitters and gave up four hits on the day to notch the win. Rex finished the season with an unblemished 17-0 record. The game turned into what was a pitcher’s duel, with Brandywine Heights pitcher Sara Fronheiser matching Rex with 11 k’s on the day. Fronheiser held Philipsburg-Osceola in check for most of the day, giving up five hits to the Lady Mounties. In the top of the second inning, the Lady Mounties struck early some trickery. Kate Burge led the inning off with a walk and advance to second on a sacrifice. With Macy Harpster at the plate, Philipsburg-Osceola got a huge call from the home plate umpire when Fronheiser was called for an illegal pitch, allowing Burge to move to third base. With a 2-1 count, Harpster dropped a picture perfect bunt with Burge racing home to complete the suicide squeeze. That would be the only run that the Lady Mounties would need, as Rex was on in her final high school game in a Lady Mounties uniform. The win is the second State Championship for Philipsburg-Osceola in the last four years, winning the title in 2007. It’s also their fourth appearance in the PIAA State Championship dating back to 2000. The win also adds to the supremacy that District 6 softball is becoming known for statewide. In the past 11 years, a team from District 6 has either played in or won the State Championship 11 times (Bald Eagle Area – four games, two Championships; Philipsburg-Osceola – four games, two Championships; Bellefonte – two games, one Championship; and Penns Valley -1 game, 1 Championship). Congratulations on a great season Lady Mounties!

Hamlin grabs checkered flag By Matt Masullo

Denny Hamlin nearly killed a member of his pit crew on his last pit stop of the day, grazing him as he sped off pit road, en route to his first victory of the season in the Heluva Good Sour Cream Dips 400 at Michigan International Speedway on Sunday. Hamlin has been close in recent weeks to capturing his first win of the season (he won eight last season), but luck had not been on his side. On the final lap, Matt Kenseth closed for what appeared to be a sure-fire photo finish, but his car got loose out of turn four, leaving for Hamlin to cruise to victory. Following Hamlin and Kenseth were Kyle Busch, Paul Menard and Carl Edwards. Next week, the Sprint Cup Series hits the road; literally, as they travel cross country to Sonoma, California to race the first of their two road course races on the season in the Toyota Save Mart 350.

Bryan Durkin-Dr. Hugh Rogers Golf Tournament The Bryan Durkin-Dr. Hugh Rogers Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, July 23, 2011, at the Nittany Country Club in Mingoville, Pa. The event is a 4 person scramble format with a shotgun start at 8:00 a.m. at the country club. Proceeds benefit the Bryan Durkin and Dr. Hugh Rogers Memorial Scholarship funds and the Bellefonte High School Football Program. The tournament was previously known as the Bryan Durkin Memorial Red Raider Open Golf Tournament and had been in existence since 1993. Bryan was an outstanding defensive end for the Red Raiders from 1984-1986. In 1992 he was tragically killed in an automobile accident the night before the tournament and had planned to play in the tournament that year. Several years ago the Bellefonte Football Program wanted to recognize also the contributions of the Rogers family to Bellefonte athletics and added the name of Dr. Rogers to the tournament. Dr. Rogers and his father were team doctors for Bellefonte athletes for 75 years. Cost of the Tournament is $80.00 per golfer and includes greens fees, cart, prizes, on course refreshments and a post tournament luncheon. Applications are available from Duffy Besch (dbesch@basd.net), John Wetzler (coach1122@yahoo. com), the Bellefonte Area High School, or at the pro shop at the Nittany Country Club. So you aren’t a golfer but you want to show your support of Bellefonte Red Raider football? Step up and be a sponsor. Several sponsor packages (see below) are available for a truly worthwhile cause. Come on! Be a part of it. Come out and see the coaches and let them know you appreciate their hard work and dedication.

STATE COLLEGE – The 5th Annual Summer’s Best Music Fest will take over the streets of Downtown State College on Saturday (6/25) with three stages and performers playing a wide variety of music. Again this year, wristbands will be sold to benefit the Heritage Fund, a program that helps underprivileged students in the State College Area School District obtain musical instruments. The wristbands are only $3 and get you special discounts at many Downtown State College businesses. The event grows every year according to Jody Alessandrine, the Executive Director of the Downtown Improvement District. “We’ve expanded over the past couple years with our Street Bazaar, which now extends down Calder Way. We also have more non-profits participating this year.” Alessandrine says that this will be the second year including a Centre County PAWS fundraiser. This year, they also have New York Life doing child fingerprinting. And, it’s the third year for the “Action Alley” near the Heister Street stage which is a BMX bike demonstration. In addition to all the local entertainment, Alessandrine is proud to have a headlining performer to close out the night on the Allen Street Stage. Jeffrey Gaines, a Harrisburg native and singer/songwriter who was signed to Chrysalis Records in 1990, will take the stage at 8 p.m. on Allen Street. “This is unbelievable for us to have this type of talent at an event like this,” said Alessandrine. Gaines has had several hit singles including Hero In Me, Scares Me More and I Like You. He has also toured with artists like Sting, Tracy Chapman and Stevie Nicks. Alessandrine also says that the DID has worked again with the Schlow Library, PSU Downtown Theatre and the

Centre Hall Teen Hosts Music Festival for Charity Saturday at the Grange Fairgrounds By Sam Stitzer

CENTRE HALL – Cody Stoner will be in 10th grade at Penns Valley High School this fall. A few years ago, he heard bluegrass music at a festival in State College, and liked it. When thinking of what he could do for his senior project at Penns Valley High School, Cody decided to organize a bluegrass music festival for charity in the Penns Valley area. Music for HOPE organizer After many months of planning and Cody Stoner. organizing work, Cody’s dream will come true this Saturday, June 25. Cody will present “Music for HOPE” on the South Stage of the Grange Fairgrounds in Centre Hall. This music festival will run all day, from 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., and will feature eight different groups (bluegrass and other genres) performing. There will be an Open Mike from noon to 1 p.m., where anyone can come and show off their talent! The following are scheduled to perform at Music for HOPE: • Tuesday Night Bluegrass Jam • Paul Carney Banjo Band • Karl Leitzel, Acoustic Singer/Songwriter • Lazy River Band • Coburn Brass • Little German Band • Penns Valley Choir • Tussey Mountain Moonshiners Different groups will perform every hour. Admission to the festival is $10 for adults, and $5 for students and senior citizens, and all proceeds will go to the Hope Fund charity, which helps people in the area who are facing major financial crises  Food will also be available. The large blue building just north of the South Stage area will be available for jammin’ all day, so folks can bring their banjos, fiddles, and gee-tars, and make music all day! This event runs concurrent with the Centre Hall Relay for Life cancer fundraiser on the fairgrounds, and the Townwide Yard Sales in Centre Hall. So if you’re coming to Centre Hall on Saturday, here’s a chance to hear lots of great music and help support the HOPE Fund. We hear so many stories of teenagers behaving badly these days, and it’s great to hear of a young man doing something good for charity and the people of Penns Valley. Cody Stoner has displayed remarkable maturity and ability in organizing this event. Let’s hope for good weather and a big crowd!

To The Last Day The Final 153 Days of 2011 A.D. Published December 2011. A true workman who neededth not be ashamed, rightly dividing the Word of Truth, comparing scripture to scripture who has studied to show himself approved! 2 Timothy 2:15 May 21, 2011-October 21, 2011 is a great period for salvation for God’s chosen ones. 153 days = a Great Multitude of Fish which did not break the disciples net. Five months or 153 days of salvation. After Peter drew in the net Jesus then said “Come and Dine.” John 21:12. Come ye who hunger and thirst. Isaiah 55:1. Today is still the day of SALVATION! Jesus said to “watch and pray.” He is waiting on YOU! Do not delay as His coming is nigh, even unto the door!
